The Date Started Off Fine

I know I said I'd stop dating, that doesn't seem to be taking hold.  Went on a lunch date today.  The date started out fine.  Then at the end, he said, "If we are to continue dating, I expect it to get physical by the fourth date...at latest."  Next!

Whaat?

I went out for a drink with a guy earlier this year.  He was nice and I felt it as being more friend than potential boyfriend.  After not hearing from him for months, he emailed me this week saying he thought I was fun and wants to be friends.  Whaat?  Is this guy suddenly lonely because it's holiday season?  Does he really want to just be friends?  Is he trying to see if I'm interested in him?  Do I even give a sh&t?  No.

I am trying to keep my guy friend count low because 1) I have plenty of guy friends, 2) guy friends are c*ckblocks (let's say I'm at happy hour with one of them, I'm almost never approached by any new guys because I'm already there with a guy), and 3) in my experience, new guy friends never want to be just friends.

No Way

As a follow up to this post, for those of you who asking me to pay you for some service, no way.  Please stop asking, if anything, it's the other way around.

Red Flag!

Wow, what a bright ss red flag!  This guy email me and I replied a couple of hours later.  He emailed again and I didn't reply over the course of six hours because I wasn't near a computer and out doing things.  He then sent another email telling me off for not responding to him in six hours and blocked me.  Holy sh*t, want to talk crazy?  Bullet dodged.

Being Single Is Good For Your Health

This article basically says being single is good for your health (except for the whole surgery and heart health thing).  However, if I were in a bad marriage, I'm sure it would give me more than heart issues (insomnia, mental problems, uncontrollable rage, etc).

I Don't Care

Dear Haters,

I don't care what you think.  You don't want to read my blog?  Then don't.  You think you know me just from reading this blog?  Okay, if you are stupid enough to think that, sure.  It's the internet and it's an anonymous blog, I can portray myself any way I want, negative or positive.  You want to leave haterrific comments?  Okay!  If you want to dish it, be ready to take it.

XOXO,
AG

Too Crowded

The dating app market is simply too crowded.  Have seen countless emails from people wanting me to try out and blog about their apps.  Sorry guys, there are too many apps out there and a lot of them have very similar features.  If you want me to check out your app, tell me why it's different from the ones already out there and how many straight single men you have in SF (including why these guys are that great when compared to existing sites).  Also, outline what you are thinking when you say you want to do a partnership.

Cheap Ring Followup

Follow up to the cheap ring post, let's look at this.  I said $500K is too much.  What do I think is a good ring?  1.5-2 carats and whatever that translates to...wild guess, $40-80K.  I can feel more outrage coming my way.  Yes, I have read a statistic saying something like 80% of all engagement rings fall into the less than 1 carat range.  Yes, I know $80K might be someone's yearly salary in other parts of the country and world.  SF is very expensive, most people are well paid, and some tech summer interns make more than what other people in the US make in a year.

Most of the people in SF (just read those hate on tech articles) are used to be in the top deciles in all aspects of their life; for example, high school class rank, college rank out of the country (those Top 25 lists), college GPA, LSAT/GMAT/GRE/MCAT scores, top ranked graduate schools, top companies, top income bracket, etc.

For all the haters out there, if you think I am crazy because I throw these figures around and they are numbers you'd like, make a change in your life and work to earn more.  I worked my *ss off to get to where I am today, so if you want it, I encourage you to go get it, instead of talking about how crazy I am.

I Would Date An Entrepreneur

This article talks about entrepreneurs and dating  I would date an entrepreneur, I prefer a guy who is ambitious and doesn't want to spend every waking hour with me.  It'd be like being single most of the time, which I'd enjoy.

A Cheap Ring?!?

This video is crazy and applies to a segment of the population I don't fall into.  The video says if a guy spends less than $2K for a ring vs. spending $2-$4K on a ring, the chances of staying married is higher with the < $2K ring.  Maybe because they don't have enough money to get a divorce?  I have purses that cost more than $2K.  Ridiculous

10 Things To Do For Me To Reply To Your Email

In response to comments from my last post, 10 things to do for me to reply to your email (when online dating):
  1. I find you attractive
  2. There is at least one clear face picture and if you are balding, you don't cut off part of your head because it will all come out if we meet
  3. There aren't pictures of other women with you unless they're clearly labeled, sister, mother, aunt, etc.
  4. The email you send makes it seem like you read my profile (no "Hi," no obvious cut and paste, etc.)
  5. Your profile is short (no pages and pages and pages, who reads all that?  Don't you respect the reader's time?  Want to know or say more?  Go on a date)
  6. Your profile does not mention anything about loving to kiss, giving massages, being sensual, and anything else that alludes to having sex or getting naked
  7. No list of things a girl should do for you (yes, I have seen this)
  8. It seems like we are in the same socioeconomic classes (like you don't make $24K a year waiting tables)
  9. You seem independent (none of this, "I've been dreaming of finding the right girl so we can spend all our time together")
  10. You know how to spell and use real words (no "Hi, how r u 2nite?")

Business Or A Date?

I met a guy at a networking event last night and he asked me out to lunch via email today.  I have no idea if this is business or a date?  Apparently, he only wants to see me even though my coworker and I met him together.  I guess I'll figure it out if/when we do meet up.

That Was Fitting

I was just talking about infidelity and that was fitting.  Went out to lunch today.  The guy was nice enough.  Then he told me he was married and has been cheating on his wife for more than five years.  He also said something about how most of his married friends are also cheating on their wives.  Great.
